Public Health Aspects of HIV Prevention and Care

London, England

Students will consider the evolution of the HIV/AIDS epidemics in the United States and the United Kingdom health systems using a public health lens and with consideration to population-based health promotion strategies. The course utilizes an experiential learning approach and a biopsychosocial framework that emphasizes on evidence-supported HIV prevention and care. Students will engage with AIDS service organizations in London and New Jersey, health care facilities, and guest speakers, all with an eye to bring an end to the HIV/AIDS pandemic.

Some work required before traveling to the site in January and some work will be due after returning.

Summer 2024

Food Systems for Sustainability 

Dates: June 8 - 22, 2024
New Brunswick, NJ

The program will host up 16 graduate students from Harokopio University at Rutgers alongside 16 Rutgers students.

This course will provide in-depth knowledge and analysis of how food system transformations can support shifts towards sustainable diets. Using a systems approach, students will learn how food is produced within various production schemes, how it moves through long and short food value chains, and how this can be leveraged to promote good nutrition, health, and sustainability. Students will learn about the health, economic, social and environmental considerations and trade-offs of leveraging sustainability within food systems, as well as how to measure them. Through a combination of in-class lectures and experiential learning, students will gain a deep understanding of how food systems can be transformed to sustainably feed 9 billion by 2050.
